The government has announced a new approach that will see system leaders, with a track record in boosting disadvantaged pupils’ achievement and closing gaps, supporting other schools to help those schools to maximise the impact of their pupil premium spending.
Under this new approach, schools judged by Ofsted to require improvement overall and in leadership and management, and to have significant issues regarding the attainment of pupils eligible for the pupil premium, will receive a clear recommendation to commission a pupil premium review from a system leader with a track record in closing gaps and accelerating progress for disadvantaged pupils.
Further information for system leaders and schools commissioning pupil premium reviews is available:
